From the Back Cover:

What is Britishness?  Should it be promoted?  If so, by whom?

These are some of the questions tackled in this wide-ranging discussion of the British question. This book could not be more timely. Devolution has brought a new focus on the future of Britain, and the nature of Britishness. So has the challenge of a more diverse society, with the search for a basis of social cohesion and solidarity. Against this background, Gordon Brown has launched his Britishness project, with its aim of producing a statement of British values.

All this provides the rich material for this book. Distinguished contributors from a range of disciplines explore the question of Britishness – past, present and future. The result is a lively and authoritative discussion of an important contemporary issue.
